Easy Thanksgiving DIY Table Displays

46481425 - autumn arrangement with wine, sunflowers and pumpkins.
When it comes time to set the table for Thanksgiving, you may think you don’t have room for many decorations once all of the food is set out. Yet there are a variety of ways to make the dining rooms in the new homes in Lakeville MN look festive for the holiday and you don’t have to rely on that dusty old wicker cornucopia. So, put in all the leaves of your dining room table and try some of these easy ideas to get your table into the holiday spirit.

If you’re hosting a lot of people and have a lot of food to set out, you don’t have a lot of space for big decorations. Instead, use the simplicity of your table décor to make a statement. Stock up on stain remover and put out your whitest tablecloth and plates. Then use deeply colored, jewel-toned napkins and flowers in the same color to really make the table pop. Go with deep burgundy and dark purple colors to create an elegant statement that still recalls the seasonal colors.

If you have the space, break out the pumpkins for your table decoration. They can be used in a variety of colors and sizes. You could use a mix of sizes and paint them in soft pastel and gold colors that can be matched to a floral centerpiece for a sophisticated approach.

For something a bit more whimsical, paint your pumpkins in soft cream colors and then spell out “thanks””, “thankful” or “blessed” with a letter on each pumpkin. Choose a word that means something to you and that gives you enough room on the table. You can use smaller pumpkins for longer words, if necessary, and you can also arrange some of the pumpkins on cake stands for a bit of height. A few tea candles spaced throughout finish off the display.

Finally, any dining room in the new homes in Lakeville MN will look great throughout the year with an easy-to-make chalkboard table runner. A simple piece of wood painted with chalkboard paint allows you to customize your table decorations all year long. It’s also a great way to get kids involved in the holiday decorations. Plus, you can use it to hold an arrangement of glass jars filled with candles, or autumn leaves or any other seasonal decoration. You can also use it to hold a variety of cake stands for your dessert options and write beneath what each one is.

Whether you go for a dramatic display or choose something simple like some evergreen garland and pine cones, it’s fun and easy to create table displays that will make your guests smile.
